18 Sep: Best Buy Doubles Recycling Commitment at Milestone Celebration

Here’s a double dose of great green news: At its corporate campus in Richfield, Minn. today, Best Buy celebrated the landmark achievement of one billion pounds of e-waste recycled in six years by customers at 1,400 U.S. stores. The company also announced an ambitious new goal to collect an additional two billion pounds of electronics and large appliances by 2020.



Complete with a state proclamation and attendance from Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, Best Buy has now set its sights on helping more consumers recycle large and cumbersome products that are difficult to dispose of and they may not know their options, such as large TVs and appliances.
